Pediatric Nurse

Pediatric Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice

This book reflects the cumulative work of two previous iterations and includes their complete text. It is a foundational volume that articulates the essentials of this specialty, its accountabilities and activities – the who, what, when, where, and how of its practice – for both specialists and generalists. The 16 standards themselves – those by which all nurses in this specialty practice and their practice competencies measured and evaluated – are grounded in the perspectives and priorities of pediatric nursing and form the core of the book. The book’s extensive scope of practice discussion – of its characteristics, development and trends, education and training, its practice environments and settings, its general and specialized practice roles, its ethical and conceptual bases – lends a broad context for understanding and using these standards. Although this reference and guide is mainly for practicing nurses and nursing faculty and students, Pediatric Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice is also an essential source document for other pediatric specialists, healthcare providers, researchers, and scholars.
